The U.S. military might execute a prisoner convicted of Rape and Murder, for the first time in more than 55 years.
Ronald Gray, a former Army soldier, was arrested and convicted back in 1988 for two murders and three rapes he committed in North Carolina back in 1988. He was sentenced to death.
Gray was sentenced to death.
Gray, who worked as a cook at Fort Bragg while he was stationed there, had already be found guilty of two other murders and five rapes in civilian courts.
U.S. District Court Judge J. Thomas Marten for the district of Kansas, denied Gray’s bid for another stay last week.
Marten ruled that a previously granted stay of execution was “no longer in effect,” which raised the possibility that Gray may become the first military execution since 1961.
